Thursday Thirteen: Spring Is Sprung

Here are thirteen things I love about spring in the Southwest:

1. Wildflowers

2. The way different kinds of wildflowers take turns blooming as the spring goes along:

3. First, bluebonnets, wild primrose, and Indian paintbrush

4. Later, Indian blanket and Mexican hat

5. Even later, purple coneflowers

6. The brilliant green of new grass and leaves

7. The return of Monarch butterflies

8. Warmer weather

9. Rain

10. Thunderstorms

11. Not tornadoes!

12. Birds building nests

13. Students in love all over campus
